2011 Chevrolet Colorado Concept
Behold, the next-generation Chevrolet Colorado. Sort of. General Motors has yanked back the sheets on what the company is calling a show truck at the Bangkok International Motor Show. Despite the 'show' label, the mid-sizer is poised to go on sale in Thailand later this year packing a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine, though there are no firm details as to what we can expect in terms of either power or efficiency. GM did say that the Colorado won't leave buyers lacking for enough towing capacity, though. Odds are we can expect tricks like the 20-inch wheels and body-color tonneau cover to be nixed as the truck makes its way closer to production.
Still, the vehicle is plenty sharp and looks to have the mechanical guts to give the global Ford Ranger a run for its money. But will GM offer the Colorado we see here in the States? That's a tough question. The automaker has made it clear that the Shreveport, Louisiana plant that manufactures the aging Colorado/GMC Canyon isn't long for this world, though we have heard rumors that the automaker isn't planning on killing the pickup all together. Here's hoping we'll see this truck or something similar in the States sometime soon.

Crash Test 2004 - 2009 Chevrolet Colorado / 2004 - 2009 GMC Canyon / 2006 - 2008 Isuzu I-Series (Frontal Impact) IIHS
results also apply to: 2004-09 GMC Canyon | 2006-08 Isuzu i-series
FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Acceptable
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right
Marginal Good Good Marginal Good Good
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon were introduced in the 2004 model year as replacements for the Chevrolet S-10 and GMC Sonoma. The Isuzu i-series pickup was introduced in the 2006 model year and discontinued after the 2008 model year.
During the crash, intrusion by the tire and wheel into the driver footwell area combined with separation of the footwell from the rocker panel and door sill caused the dummy's left foot to be trapped underneath the brake pedal. The pedal had to be cut off to free the foot. This entrapment resulted in a structure rating downgrade from acceptable to marginal.
Restraints/dummy kinematics â Movement of the upper part of the dummy was well controlled. After the dummy moved forward into the airbag, it rebounded into the seat without its head coming close to any stiff structure that could cause injury.
Injury measures â Measures taken from the head, neck, and chest indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. Forces on the left tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg would be possible.
4x4 Diesel Chevy Colorado
I live and work overseas in Thailand. Here is a shot of my truck. It is a 2007 Chevy Colorado. It has a 3.0 liter 4 cylinder diesel. I changed the turbo to a Holset HX 32 and installed a bigger Intercooler. It was Dynoed in Bangkok and it had 283 rear wheel horse power and 411 ft/lbs of torque. This was with 275/45R20 tires. I just lifted it and put on 35" tires. I will be changing the programmer to a stand alone unit to see if there is some more power in there. There should be some updates in a couple months. Rainy season is coming!!
